This is a pretty simple way to create traffic generation, all you have to do is visit other blogs in your particular niche. Then add your comments and there is usually a place that you can also add your link.
Here you would want to add your thoughts that will actually contribute to their article ideas. This can be done in form of a question, an extra thought to what they are writing about or a specific feedback.
In regular postings/comments to other blogs, then you will be able to build a relationship with the blog owner. In doing this could lead to being a guest blogger, backlinks to your blog and possibly an interview.
Another great tip, would be to find several blogs in your niche, signup for their RSS feed. With this you will be able see when a new article or comment is posted.
That will allow you to possibly be the first one to leave a comment on a new article. This will let your comment always be at the top of all comments that will be posted on that article.
Also, with an article that has a lot of comments and you leave one too, then you know that there are a lot of people are coming back to leave their comments and will also see yours.
After you have been posting many comments on another blog, send the blog owner and a message and see if you can submit an article on their blog.
This will allow you to generate a lot of targeted visitors back to your blog. Now you have gained popularity with the blog owner and his visitors, this can make you a source of authority.
Traffic From Forums:
Here you will want to leave some expert thoughts, just like you would do on blogs. If this is done with just off-the-wall comments, then it could lead to you being banned.
Always leave a good comment or suggestion so that you will be able to be seen as an expert and generate all that extra traffic.
Be sure to read the forum rules and where you can leave your link than add your keywords in that signature. You can leave controversial comments, but remember you are there for networking with other marketers.
In helping you to look like an expert, then start answering some of the questions on some of the posts. You can also start your own series of comments or questions and engaging with other marketers this way.
Be sure to thank everyone involved that has replied or provided you with information. This will not only provide you with valuable information and traffic generation, but will also be building those strong relationships.
